Mt 25:14-30 Jesus told His disciples this parable: “A man going on a journey called in his servants and entrusted his possessions to them. To one he gave five talents; to another, two; to a third, one— TO EACH ACCORDING TO HIS ABILITY... But the man who received one went off and dug a hole in the ground and BURIED HIS MASTER ’s MONEY... 'Should you not then have put my money in the bank so that I could have got it back with interest on my return? Now then! Take the talent from him and give it to the one with ten. For to everyone who has, more will be given and he will grow rich; but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. And THROW THIS USELESS SERVANT INTO THE DARKNESS outside, WHERE THERE WILL BE WAILING AND GRINDING OF TEETH.'"
We all have talents. We all have gifts from GOD. We all are called to evangelize.
We do not all have the SAME talents. We do not all have the SAME gifts. We are ALL CALLED TO EVANGELIZE.
Some of us, Great Saints, will bring many to GOD. Some of us, smaller saints, will bring some to GOD. We are ALL CALLED TO EVANGELIZE.
May we never be satisfied with hiding our faith; with burying it behind closed doors, or limiting it to one hour on Sunday.
GOD has clearly stated the result of a hidden faith: DARKNESS - THERE WILL BE WAILING AND GRINDING OF TEETH.
Today, as we meditate, let us ask GOD how HE desires us to EVANGELIZE today! Next, let us ask HIM for the courage and the talent to DO AS HE WISHES. Then, let us TRUST.
GOD never asks more than we can do, and HE never asks us to do it alone.
And looking at them Jesus said to them, "With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Mt 19:26
Our Blessed Mother, pray for us. St. Medardus, patron saint of hurricanes, pray for us.
